Celebrating Cecile by Pr Janos Dabasy (em)
I would like to share the happy news about the ‘junior’ of our congregation (Hungarian Lutheran Congregation of Victoria) turning 100 in February. The attached photo was taken of Cecile arriving at church last Sunday. This was the last worship service in her ‘last century’. The next time we worship together she will be in her new century!
Cecile has a large family including many grandchildren. She is one of the original members of our congregation, dating back to the late 1950’s. She was and is one of the regular members. I can count on my fingers how many times she was away in 60+ years. Up to about six years ago she was still driving, but now problems with her eyesight prevents her from that. She still lives by herself and goes shopping (taken by her daughters). She is always happy and cheerful, she is an example of a faithful Christian. May God bless her with good health and may He bless us with her company for years to come.
